    “Thanks to the foundation of self-supporting national economy, scientific and technical forces trained with our own efforts and their clear heads, there are no difficulties insurmountable for us despite the enemies’ sanctions of 10 years or for 100 years,” he said, speaking at the State Academy of Sciences on Friday. 

    Pyongyang has recently held several missile tests, with the most recent Hwasong-15 launch having taken place in November. NK frequently boasts that its intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are capable of hitting the entire US mainland.

    The test launches were met with new rounds of UN Security Council sanctions (UNSC). These targeted remaining North Korean imports and exports, in addition to previous harsh economic restrictions, and were denounced by Pyongyang as an “act of war.” Washington also introduced several rounds of unilateral punitive measures.
